I am a huge fan of the original American McGee's Alice and I'm very excited to see how this game pans out, the trailers have got me pretty hyped but after reading this I feel like the story is lacking... kind of like a recycled version of the first game:
"Madness Returns takes place eleven years after the events of its predecessor, the same amount of time between the two games' releases. Alice has been released from Rutledge Asylum and into the care of a London psychiatrist, where the traumatic memories of her parents' deaths continue to haunt her. As a result of her relocation, her hallucinations and internal struggle have increased in severity, and she returns to Wonderland in hopes of security and comfort. However, it has once again become warped by her insanity, and she must save its residents and herself from the evil that is taking over Wonderland and also embarks on finding the true cause of her family's mysterious deaths."
